Good eats, but in a dump

The shrimp was really good, but the place was a mess. Dirty walls, tables and floors. You order at the counter and they call you up when it's ready. We paid with a credit card. After swiping the card, she turned the iPad POS around and it asked me which tip I wanted to leave, 15%, 20% or 25... read more

If you know her shrimp from the truck, the storefront is just as good. In the Poipu shopping center near Bubba's it is a definite worthwhile stop. The scampi and coconut shrimp are standout stars in this counter order and get your own drinks place. A must for shrimp lovers - BTW cash only!

I usually reserve the "Terrible" rating for places where there are roaches or something so despicable...but I was downright piss when I got done eating this meal! We arrived 45 min before closing. Took forever for anyone to help us. When it was time to order, we were told that they were out of rice. How do you run out... More

We were expecting a truck, but its an actual store. Food was good for the price, and service was friendly. Worth checking out if you need a break from all the expensive restaurants for dinner.

We missed our trip to the shrimp trucks on the North Shore on Oahu so we decided to give Savage Shrimp a try. We got the coconut shrimp and it wasn't bad. I think my husband and I could have just split a plate instead of both ordering our own plates. There was a lot of shrimp and a ton... More

We looked this place up after reading the glowing reviews of the food.... Let me save you some time, as sit here hours after the meal with the aftertaste of my Fire Road Shrimp still haunting me I can tell you first hand that if this is someone's idea of the best seafood they have ever eaten my heart goes...

Not only is this place a great value, the food is delicious. You won't go away hungry, even with their smallest servings. If you like spice, try the no ka oi shrimp. This is a very casual island style eayery.

Recommended by a friend. Had fried shrimp and fries - friends ate peeled shrimp because it was gluten free. Good food for a good value.
